about the gas tax. i'm sure you have all thought about it a lot. plenty of studies have shown consumer willingness to buy fuel-efficient cars is tied to lower prices and gas or i should say higher prices and gas. congress obviously is in no mood to raise the gas tax right now, so how do we deal with that to make consumers perhaps more willing to look at fuel-efficient models? >> an excellent question. who wants to take that? >> i will be brave. i think when i think about how do we get consumers -- it's nice to see you. we have talked on the phone a lot before. when. when we look at getting these consumers, for me it's about educating them on the total cost of ownership and what that means for them over the course of the life of of the vehicle, whether they are in a lease situation or they have purchased a door there is a 10% that -- it's understanding the total, and i also think -- one of my girlfriends lives in new jersey. they. they don't have to pump their own gas. they do it for you there. she moved and she was horrified. you have to put a value on having an electric car you can pl

from a federal perspective is that this takeover is subsidized through tax credits that or just extended by the fiscal cliff bill, which allows investors to come into our inner-city neighborhoods and build expensive buildings, turned over and lease them to a charter boards and high rates, so charters don't have sufficient funding to even operator schools as far as operating expenses such as teachers and books and so on. i'm concerned about proliferation of charter's and what this has done to destroy neighborhoods. host: here's a comment -- coming up next, we will talk more about immigration policy. what the president had to say yesterday and what a bipartisan group of senators announced earlier this week. argos -- our guest is carlos gutierrez, now working on immigration issues as well as other things in his portfolio. later on, paul krugman, a columnist, gave us a visit. we will be right back.

, and this is net, after tax revenue is realized, $2.6 trillion. and that's in costs in medicare, social security, unemployment compensation, food stamps and other welfare programs. that's a foundation study. so the bottom line is, we're trying to balance the budget in washington that we'll balance in ten years but not taking into account the 2.6 trillion that it will cost by creating a pathway to citizenship and that number may increase, wolf, if we don't have our borders secured. >> one final question, because a lot of republicans are looking at the fastest growing vote, the hispanic vote across the country and republicans, at least in the last presidential election, the one before 2008, didn't do very well. they are obviously anxious to reach out to latino voters. are you saying you want to just forget about that vote? >> no. what i'm saying, wolf, is that anyone that believes that immigration or illegal immigration is the most important issue to the latino population in america is grossly mistaken. it is an issue but it's not the most important issue to latinos. listen, the people that are hu

before you pay any increase taxes. it doesn't make any sense. when you go into medicare, your pain to set up premiums and two sets of metadata coverage. two sets of party coverage. just for the string of monthly expenses for health care. they escalate dramatically at a time when you have probably less opportunity to increase ever come in the future. so i think we have to be very careful when we look at the beneficiary impact of changes and we need to understand what we're talking about and how it will impact people. the posturing and medicare is very high. in order to increase the cost is a difficult thing to do. all of these things go together. so i worry you can miss some of the problems that can happen. >> i can't help but draw a parallel to the commercial side where we have had for years efforts to try to get health care spending under control by dealing with the benefits side and inventing new benefits structures and care products and other things that would make individuals more price conscious and so forth. on the other hand, now we are dealing with the supplier side and payment re
